Patchwork Farm On Tour

5 Jun 2018

May and June are busy months for Patchwork Farm staff! Alex and Paula showed off the work of the Farm at the Heathfield Show on May 26th , with the theme of the Sensory Garden. On Saturday 2nd June they were showing off Patchwork Farm animals in the high street at Burgess Hill, as part of a community event – members of the public (children and adults alike) were instantly attracted to the animals and lots were really interested in the work of the Foundation. Alex and Paula gave an assembly at Burgess Hill School for Girls on 5th June – the Junior and Senior pupils loved hearing about both the children at Chailey Heritage and the animals at the Farm and had LOTS of questions at the end of the assembly! On 7th, 8th and 9th June, Alex and Paula will be at the South of England show at Ardingly, helped by some very committed volunteers; the Farm stand will be situated in the Education section at the showground. All of these events are fantastic opportunities to let the wider community know about the work of Chailey Heritage Foundation, with the Farm as a focus for this. One of the many benefits of having a lovely Farm at Chailey Heritage is that it creates chances to raise awareness about disability, in a positive and natural context – people of all ages and abilities can connect through things that ‘move and grow’!
